Bakin' with Bacon

Zingerman's Bakehouse bacon pecan sandy cookies by Antonis Achilleos

This class is being offered virtually. 

We'll be using the power of bacon to flavor three amazing baked goods, all in honor of Zingerman's annual Camp Bacon® and Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon. Together, we'll make rich Bacon Cheddar scones and sweet-and-salty Bacon Pecan Sandy cookies. Then, we'll take you to hog heaven with a demonstration of our Potato Bacon strudel*. Try and contain yourself.

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and all the tasty bacon baked goods you made in class. 

* Please note, you can watch the Potato Bacon strudel portion of this class as a demo OR you can make it along with us; you’ll just need a large work surface (30"x70") and a linen cloth you don't mind getting flour on.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
